of the big bets that president obama can make to cement his legacy abroad? joining me is martin indyk of the brookings institution, an assistant secretary of state for president clinton and also the author of "bending history, barack obama's foreign policy." i got to take part in a conversation of big bets, black swans, a presidential briefing where you and the team at brookings write about both some of the real dangers in foreign policy as well as some areas where the president can make an impact if he so chooses. there's a lot to digest including the fact a new secretary of state is going to be presumably confirmed by the senate, john kerry. and yet in the financial times as we do this interview it is hillary clinton and the questions she faced about the death of our ambassador and others in benghazi and her warning to an administration and her successor in the financial times headlines about mali. clinton fears a new haven. does he anticipate for north africa in a way he couldn't have anticipated when he comes into office is now unstable, think about tunisia, egypt, libya. and ther
." joy reid is managing editor of the grio. most are msnbc analysts. joy, your bet. do the pennsylvania type guys who go out when they're supposed to shoot, practice shooting and get good at it with a couple shots, that's all you get with a deer, are they going to go with the nuts? >> you know what, chris? i mean, i grew up in colorado. i grew up around people who were military, ex-military, people who hunted, you know, colorado is a big hunting state. and i don't think anyone that i have ever met that is a responsible gun owner can side with these, you know, for lack of a better word, these loony tunes who are out here because they're doing something different. they're stockpiling. they're getting assault rivals. these are not i don't rememberal gun owners. what you're hearing from now is the absolute fringe, and, unfortunately, they're being allowed to speak for the pro second amendment crowd. >> david, we're going to show the worst of the worst in a minute but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or r
, they plummeted. aubrey bet the company on the idea that natural gas would not only become the natural power generated fuel it is becoming overtaking coal, but it would also become a major surface vehicle fuel, the latter which makes so much sense, simply didn't happen or take off in time to boost chesapeake. aubrey is saying he's retired, but other sources are saying he was forced out. a victim of the ways that have always been his hallmark. but just at the exact moment when he departs, rich kinder, the dean of t complex in the u.s. swoops up the partner in pipelines in order to get more exposure to the transfer of, you guessed it, natural gas and natural gas liquids from the eagleford shale among others, two refineries that can turn fuel into plastic. kinder's saying the revolution that aubrey bet his company on is now upon us. aubrey didn't get there in time. i believe that chesapeake's decision to remove the man who has discovered more nat gas and liquids than anyone else on earth will mark the bottom in pricing for oil natural gas. kinder morgan knows they will need that pipe from the

arenas across the middle east. and this yearslong bet by the islamic republic of iran on these groups has paid off, because now their regional allies have become the most influential players in their respective arenas today. the result is that today it is the islamic republic of iran and its ideas of participatory islamist governance and an independent foreign policy that has real influence, real power in countries across the middle east from egypt to baa rape that were -- bahrain that were once clearly in america's camp. in strategic terms, the islamic republic of iran has been and is using through its narrative not its drones, not its tanks, through its narrative they are using the political awakening of middle eastern publics to alter the very nature of power politics in the middle east. as we describe in our book "downing to tehran," this has been an effective foreign policy and national security strategy for the islamic republic of iran, one that is exactly and repeatedly underappreciated in the united states. and at this point i'm going to hand it over to flipt to continue -- flynt
, talking about mayoral bets since we beat the falcons mayor lee won his bet with that city's mayor, 25 pounds of peaches are on the way. >> thank you, carolyn. a lot of peaches. abc 7 news -- we'req sending our entire team, clearing out this building. i'll be there. mike shumann will be there. shu is a former 49 yes, i think his super bowl ring is surgically attached at this point. it doesn't come off. >> and we'll be tweeting updates on abc 7 news bay area, coming up after 4:37, the prank that caught jim and john's parents off guard it was really funny. ang around for that. let's check a check of the forecast. >> wet weather, just a look at live doppler 7. you can see a path of moisture reaching from east bay down to south bay. south bay has been the wettest region 12-24 hours. there are pockets of rainfall around to milpitas. in the east bay, we are picking up on live doppler 7 hd. this is not hitting the ground but there are pockets of rainfall in this region. live more, snaft recorded a tenth of an inch. now up to 19/100ths of rain in the last 12 hours, just updated these numbers.
is they are betting that they'll have more political capital on their side in a few months after we get through the sequestration battle and a couple of other legislative things going on on capitol hill. on the surface, it does win where democrats are. >> i want to take a listen and we'll talk about it on the other side. here it is. >> it is reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off their threat to hold our economy hostage. that's senate leader harry reid there. house minority leader nancy pelosi rejected the plan. did the republicans make a real effort here or was this a gimmick as nancy pelosi said? >> the most important thing for republicans is they are re-ordering the three fiscal conflicts that the country has ahead. the three conflicts are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and
. >> 102%. >> i'll bet you. >> i'll bet you. i will bet you a quarter. >> i bet he doesn't. >> this will be the second president in american history who takes the oath of office four times -- >> after fdr. >> this guy had two, the original one and the re-do, first term, today, and tomorrow, four times. >> barnes & noble gets a big scheduling tip of the hat for signing the memoir on the day of the swearing-in. >> is it really out of barnes & noble? >> yes! >> you are the big supreme court -- what if the justices started wearing advertisements on their robes, like nascar drivers -- barnes & noble, lennox china -- >> i like it. >> i will tell you what happened. >> i want to hear! >> i boarded my flight last night to come down here. they hold using, saying they are not ready. we are standing here, ready to get on. it wasn't that they weren't ready. justice sotomayor walks in front of everybody because she's a supreme court justice and they get her on the ?riet as they do with any supreme court justice. she is in front of me. she was very nice, very gracious to me and to every
are -- i think the republicans are betting maybe the tax hikes were off the table, and then pelosi on down the democrats are saying no that's not the case. how do you see the next round going? >> i think unfortunately people have an expectation that there will be theatrics, brinksmanship, then there will be some sort of agreement or deferral or kicking the can down the road, and nobody has an expectation that there will be effectiveness or really solving a problem, certainly solving a problem for the long-term. there's just diminished expectations about what washington generally and congress specifically can even achieve and people are getting discouraged and that becomes sort of a self-fulfilling prophesy where people don't expect much. they don't get much. and it's a circle. it's a cycle that inhibits washington, government's effectiveness, congress's effectiveness and it's a license to make our problems worse and not make them better. people need to hold congress to a higher standard, and right now there's such a bad attitude, there's no sense that congress should or could be held to th
bills as the president said, we're not a dead-bet country. i'm glad they finally saw the light. we need to pay our bills and move forward. there is a stronghold of 75 republican tea party members who quite frankly do listen to the tea party in many ways, and hopefully this is a signal that they too need to understand that this should not be an issue. it should not be held honestly. hostage. we should raise the debt ceiling. that's an automatic. we should move forward and talk about how we create jobs. by creating jobs we reduce the deficit. >> jennifer: i'm take taking it as an encouraging sign that the tea party can be moved by public voices. if they can be moved on the debt ceiling of all things, maybe they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize
bandwagon hats back on for another right. on february 21st, 2011. on cnn gts offered a bet that the reigning regime will not be there in a year's time, close quote. two days later and foreign policy, hillary and i took stairstep a nice feature. i recognize the notion that two former u.s. government officials turn university professors betting george soros and anything made an absurd, but that's what we did. we given that not only with the islamic republic still beat the rams government and a year's time, but the balance of influence and power in the middle east to be tilted even further in the favor. almost two years since iris made his feature as they were eager to collect on it. later in 2011, the back-and-forth between ayatollah khomeini, the islamic republic later and president ahmadinejad over the resignation reinstatement of the intelligence minister and other issues. the same cast of iran expert on mainstream media gave developments overblown, even hysterical treatment portraying them as unprecedented signs of an insecure regime. such analyses revealed the very least lamentable ignora
you do. >> reporter: i bet you do. media day today. lot of whackyness going on new orleans. it was not all fun and >>> welcome back. i'm meteorologist doug kammerer. we started off the week on our monday with a two-hour delay in many locations because of ice problems. temperatures in the upper 20s lower 30s. today we hit mere 70 degrees. what a difference a day makes. sitting at 59. winds out of the south at 10 miles an hour. very mice evening. it is going to con to be so. 62 in rockville and college park. 61 towards camp springs. 63 in reston. warrenton coming in at 64 degrees. very warm day today. i think we will see one more warm day and then all bets are off. things will change big time once again. we went way up today. next couple of days we are bogey to go way back down. this is the reason why. not around our region just yet. way back to the west this is the cold front that has snow behind it. out ahead of it looking at severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings and watches and all of that is moving our way and it is going on make its way in here tomorrow might. tomorrow
in nashville. >> dr. schaffner i have to ask you the question that i bet you every other viewer is thinking which is i had a flu shot this year. does that make me impregnable at this point or does this mean i'm just as vulnerable as everyone else? >> just remember, the influenza vaccine is a good vaccine but it's not a perfect vaccine. it works best in young, healthy, people who have a robust immune system but paradoxically in the people that we would like to protect the most, seniors, people with severe underlying immunological illnesses it's not as effective but even so it often provides partial protection. it will make a more serious illness milder. it can prevent hospitalization and, of course, death. >> dr. more ito what do you tell people that ask you about sacs nation? obviously you tell them to go ahead and have it but what if they compaq and tell you, i got sick anyway? >> i think it's important to remember what dr. schaffner said and that is, it's not a perfect vaccine so even though you got sick you didn't end up in the hospital or get seriously ill. and the other thing, there ar
it will be a cakewalk. they know what they're doing and i think they make a tremendous bet. but i also think that, you know, the thinks that they're bringing up, he's addressed them. he's a veteran. people know that he is not going to be the one that one that makes -- you know, he's not going a rogue defense secretary. he's going to be advising the president. >> do you think there would be a filibuster, though? do you think republicans would filibuster? or do you think that maybe that will be a bridge that republicans who don't vote for him but vote to move him? >> i'm going to echo senator schumer and say it's too soon. my bet would be against the filibuster and confirmation. >> meaning, he'll basically say, democrats are going to confirm. but republicans are not going to prevent the vote? >> i'd say no republicans. >> my friend jonathan last has a new book coming out what to expect when no one's expecting. that may be the new fertility trends in this country. >> okay. senator? >> i know you think i'm going to be my son in football but i'm actually going to be my sister who is a film director who has
-- you don't want to bet your house on the outcome. but i would say that the likelihood is that they are not going to be able to get an assault weapons ban through this congress. >> instead of dividing ourselves as a country along partisan lines let's come back to what is most pragmatic, what will keep people safe in america. >> all right. so let's dig right in. joining me now we have joining me msnbc's reverend al sharpton, ed shultz and peter alexander. peter, i want to start with you because we have heard that the president will be leading off the press conference focusing on the debt ceiling. what more do we know about how long that opening statement is going to be? >> we only know it's going to be some brief remarks from the president to kick off this news conference that will be notedly, thomas, the last news conference of his first term as president. but it's notable because it's the very same topic that you can expect he had to focus on the last couple of years he will focused on the next zell several months or years as he continues to battle with congress in ter
guantanemo. and i am going to bet that there are some enhanced interrogation techniques going on in guantanemo. and i'm going to make a second bet, they are being made by who's, the cia. i don't have a problem with that, by the way. but that i think is going on. >> well, we're also not going to find out about what exactly happened guantanemo because another broken executive promise is -- >> you want increased terrorism in spice and guantanemo? i want opaqueness. i don't want to know what's going on. >> i want more killer robots in the skies raining down. >> the droneman. the drones can't get you to talk. keith boynkin, kathryn mangeward and jim pethakukus. >>> the dow up 53 points today. hot stocks. we're talking ford and facebook. they led the way. even with the mess in washington. i'm kind of still leaning bullish on this whole story. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or turn 30-million artifacts... ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology an
to discourage you from making bets that distort the market. for the rest of us, i don't see a downside, ed. >> how would we make a determination? because you know they would come back and say oh, this is really going to hurt the economy. how would this hurt the economy? >> i don't see how discouraging speculation, which is almost all done with borrowed money. they effectively borrow money at a rate of 30 to 1. you put 3% down and borrow the rest of the money. i don't see how this hurts the economy. and if we reduce this volatility and reduce market distortion, we can get back to having a market focused on investments that create production in the future and wealth in the future, not creaming the market today through speculation. >> quickly, you think this is something congress could embrace? >> not probably in this congress in the house, but i think this is an idea. it's been around for 80 years. we may well see come about, ed, and hopefully we. we need speculators, but we don't want them to be overwhelming the market. >> all right, david cay johnston, thank you for your time on the "ed sh

, obviously. thank you. you're welcome. i bet these have pride of place in your dining room. they're actually in my mother's dining room on either side of the sideboard. right. what do you know about them? not very much at all. my grandfather bought them and he was told at the time they came from the duke of hamilton's palace. right. that's a grand start, isn't it? the duke of hamilton's palace. well, it was called hamilton palace. but the contents was sold in 1882. it's a very famous auction. one of the most famous actions of the 19th century. i didn't know that. these candelabra are clearly, to me what's called rococo revival which started in popular taste in about the 1820's, 1830's. but for a big, very wealthy, noble family like the hamiltons, who were in london and buying all the best french things they would be buying french early revival things in the 1810, 1820's. i.e., when he got married, or almost certainly in 1819, when he became the duke. just to explain very quickly how i can date these they look like french 1730's or '40s. but they're a little
on a specific issue. that's a very dangerous thing. but, look, should we do something about spending? you bet we should but the debt limit is really the wrong place to have a debate where you start to defeat the country's economic position. >> that seems like unrelated issues. before my banker would give me more money or before american express would raise my credit limit they would want to know how i plan to live within my means in the future. >> they are related but i'm saying that we have to take in context where we are right now with our economy. our economy is just at the threshold of a recovery. this would, markets would react what we're doing. melissa: okay. >> we would see unemployment continue to be a major factor. and when you look at the trade deficit we have, which peter morici more than anybody has tracked, we, we have issues dealing with our economy. we aren't dealing with. spending should be --. melissa: absolutely are. >> don't go putting us in the tank here. melissa: what is the best outcome for the economy with the debt limit debate? >> we certainly have, the dennis is right th
geithner is that he -- you would not, if you were in the betting market at the beginning of the obama first term, wount stha guy is going to be the guy who makes economic policy, this guy is going to be influential and go in the history books as one of america's most influential and important for better or ill treasury secretaries because he got a really bad start to the job. he stumbled out of the gate. he gave press conference that's were panned. he was not particularly close to barack obama. yet he managed to have by all accounts across the spectrum, tremendous influence and as someone who worked with him and sat across tables with him, neil, how did he pull that off? >> i think he has a sense of president obama. and i think they connected on a personal level. and he somehow earned the president's trust. but i think when you look at what he's done, it is a remarkable thing. most of the policies that he engineers or did in response to financial crisis were failed policies. and i think, you know, part of his legacy going to be what we're going to have to deal with in the coming years as a
role -- >> i bet they haven't even traveled a quarter of the miles. >> john, you ought to have somebody there -- >> she surpassed a predecessor, i think it was madeline al bright who held the record. >> what was albright's record? >> this is a million miles. >> excuse me, hillary just passed that record in the last couple of months. so it's not that big a deal. >> john what you're saying -- >> pat, please, i would like to finish. >> go ahead. >> in terms of the accountability here, there was an accountability aboard that she appear pointed that reported, that calls for like 29 different reforms which goes step by step where it was broken down, and maybe she should have read those cables, and i would hope that john kerry -- >> she doesn't have to. with the enhanced technology we have. >> john, let me talk to your point. >> she is not going to read every cable. >> the cable was addressed to her. we have a copy of the cable on this broadcast. >> john, let me talk to your point. you're exactly right. if she is going to do this million miles of travel there ought to be an executive deputy of
. better bet right now, i would suggest cutting through town. d.c. route 295 kept ill worth avenue will save you a lot of headache and you don't have to sit through the delays starting to build here on the east side of the beltway. beltway just south of 50, only the right lane getting by in each direction. quickly, let's pop up the cameras. if you are traveling on the beltway, you will find that lanes are open. no problems to report as you continue to make your way and the top stretch of the beltway between college park and bethesda. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. traffic. fur. >> thank you. let's get more on that breaking news on the beltway. >> melanie alnwick just arrived on the scene and joins us by phone. what is the latest on the situation? >> it looks like complete kay on the here. we just did make our way around the beltway getting off on 50 coming over to where they have the media parked on the shoulder. all you can see is just flashing lights everywhere. i could barely make out the back of the fire truck. it does look like it is still overturned at this poi
and challenges with all three. if i had to bet i bet they all are confirmed and that hagel will be the toughest but ultimately will get through. the larger issue, with brennan going to c.i.a. and with jack lew going to treasury this is the effective consolidation of the white house and the president directly over treasury and c.i.a. and c.i.a. nominally an independent agency. >>gregg: these are corner -- cronies? >> yes and it is worrisome. >>gregg: pat, especially hagel who has said to republicans, troubling things about iran, hamas, hezbollah. >> said troubling things to democrats and not just republicans and he will be the most problematic. we see president obama and his chief of staff will either be biden's or the deputy of tom donnalyn, all white males, to drop the mask of pretense of bipartisanship, pushing the agenda through and the discussion each of them is what we can do in terms of ignoring the law. but hagel has real problems. >> john, you have pointed out that republicans are in disarray. does that make it impossible for them to oppose the nominations? >> it makes it harder. the bi
bet to a shotgun will keep you a lot safer. a double barrel shotgun and somebody's using an assault weapon instead and it's harder to use an assault weapon and a shotgun. >> biden also says it is more urgent to ban high-capacity magazines as well. arthel: it seems that the renewal on the assault weapons ban is still a bit of a stretch. >> critics say that when dianne feinstein was in office and congress failed to reauthorize it, what is being proposed is not banning all weapons, but dealers could so what they have in stock. the makers say it is disappointing but not surprising that senator feinstein is focusing on curtailing the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals and focusing on our broken mental-health system. they say that finds him has been trying to ban weapons for decades. she was president of the san francisco board of supervisors in the late 1970s and she was there when a disgruntled member killed two people on the board. jon: let's bring in jonah goldberg. he is a fox news contributor. it is said that mr. obama plans to take a more combative approach on gun contro
and something else to make it work. you can bet the senate will ask hagel, how will you make it work, senator and he won't have an answer. >> by that time hopefully he will have an answer. colonel jack jacobs. good to see you. savannah. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton returns to capitol hill with heated questions about the terror attack on benghazi, libya. andrea hitmitchell has this sto. >> introduce iing john kerry toe senate confirmation hearing he chaired. it's a safe bet he will get a better reception than the hostile reception they gave hillary clinton on benghazi. after nearly five hours of gruelling testimony, clinton showed rare public emotion talking about the deaths of ambassador chris stevens and three others in benghazi. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy, it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag drape caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters and the lives left alone to raise their children. >> she took the blame for the tragedy. >> i
have seen hurricane wind gusts. you can bet that we will have delays across the airports in the northeast. there are your wind gusts right now. forty-four in nantucket. philadelphia 52. we will still be left with those wins throughout the day. 30 degrees drop. 22 degrees in chicago. extremely cold across the northern plains, upper west. we are back to winter. back to you. connell: you are right. extreme. dagen: i saw that tweet about the temperature drop in chicago. it is bananas. >> they broke a record. it will be 3 degrees tomorrow in chicago. extreme weirdness. dagen: unbelievable. thank you so much. these guys could not get it done. we need jobs in the country, but the president's job counsel is going away. connell: that is it. it is done. we will talk more about the airstrikes in the middle east. what this conflict means that if anything, for the oil market. right now, let's go to the stock market with some of your winners on the s&p 500. ♪ twins. i didn't see them coming. i have obligations. cute obligations, but obligations. i need to rethink the core of my portf
say they're not so sure. >> well, i'm a betting man. it will work two or three hours and go out again. >> reporter: residents expect another update from the management company tomorrow aft afternoon at 1:00. the city code enforcement department is expecting the same thing. by the way, we did check with the city code enforcement department. the management company here was cited in 2007 when they installed the boiler are for not having the proper paperwork. that has now been resolved but they have been crated for other code violations since then not related to the boil er. >> thank you, kris. >>> new details on the big tree that came crashing down onto a home in the north bay and also knocked down a power pole. pg&e restored power to some people but still about 30 customers are in the dark right now. the saturated ground from our recent storms being blamed for this. the tree took out the entire second floor of the house. a neighbor heard and felt all the commotion. >> you feel the ground. quite literally, yeah. i didn't know what it was. >> pretty alarming just to look at the video. tha
to taken that bet. >> bret: yeah. might be a longshot. >> bret: one thing talked about is u.s. troops getting immunity as security agreement worked out post-2014. status enforces agreement, the agreement they will work out. one thing that jennifer griffin reported zero troops after 2014 is a bluff by the white house to force karzai's hand to agree to immunity for troops that would be left on the ground after that time. that is not what happened with iraq. that deal did not get signed. that is why the troops left when they did. >> right. >> it seems like there will be a signed deal this time. >> yeah. it seems like there will be troops, some residual force kept there, which is fine. the reason obama hasn't made a good case for gans is there is no good case for afghanistan. we should have left quite some time ago. it doesn't mean we didn't go there with good intentions or there weren't bad people that needed be overthrown but not a successful war. the fact we still have people over there that are going to die for a mission that obama just basekly told us we're really not achieving. we d
